  • Dr Hanna is inviting LHAB members to perform with LHB during Bevo Blvd and Stampede parades for Longhorn fans and football team. Please check the box during registration if you’re interested in playing and marching in these pre-game parades so LHB can allocate personnel properly. Bevo Blvd/Stampede event is a 1st Come – 1st Play opportunity based on online registration. Not everyone will be able to participate, as we have limited size restrictions, we will assign on a first-come-First-serve basis dependent on part distribution.

  • UT Athletics has placed guest seats in Section 18-19, northeast corner lower deck at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium (red-lined).  This is the same location LHB has sat the past several years.  We realize this is a change in protocol from previous years where LHAB guests were able to sit within proximity of LHAB, UT-Athletics option #2 was NE Upper Deck for LHAB and guests, and we felt this wasn’t an option for our members and guests
